Eucalyptus Allergy Blood Test


Test Code: 602930
Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

Eucalyptus Allergy Blood Test

This test is used to measure a person's allergic reaction to Eucalyptus.  Eucalyptus is a type of evergreen tree that is native to Australia but cultivated in many parts of the world.  Oil from eucalyptus leaves is used in a number of topical medicinal products including decongestants, anti-inflammatories, and moisturizers.  Teas made from eucalyptus leaves are often used for their medicinal effects.  Allergic reactions to eucalyptus pollen are rare because they release very little airborne pollen.  People who are allergic to eucalyptus oil will need to check ingredients before using a variety of medical cremes and ointments.

Common symptoms include skin rash, itching, hives, coughing, sneezing, difficulty breathing, red eyes, runny nose, and swelling.  The severity of the symptoms can vary depending on the person.

Allergies are caused by a reaction in the body's immune system.  The body identifies certain substances as harmful and produces IgE antibodies against them.  These antibodies trigger the release of histamine which causes the symptoms of an allergic reaction.  The severity of the allergy will vary from one person to the next.  Blood allergy testing provides numerical results for IgE antibody levels to help determine how severe a reaction a person will have.  Positive allergy test results should be discussed with a person's doctor to determine the appropriate follow-up.  

This test can be ordered by anyone who experiences allergy symptoms after using products that contain eucalyptus.  Please see our Allergy Testing Category for more options. 

Results for this test typically take 3-5 business days.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
